No, what I’ve actually meant - is it possible to have a free function that takes some string view (QLatin1StringView?) and operates on that view instead of allocating a new string. I’m asking because I’m kinda nooby in UTF and I don’t really know what should happen for non-ascii characters in that case (should such a function just ignore them?).
Such a function can solve the problem with .toUpper()/toLower() in QByteArray - just remove them and use free function if you’re sure your string is latin1/you don’t care about UTF (which is the currently supported case).

On the other hand, if we introduce QLatin1String/QUtf8String/Q(Utf16)String, such a function will probably won’t make much sense (except for optimization purposes/being an implementation detail) since the API for those classes should be the same, i.e. have some allocating toUpper/toLower methods (since string size can change after those operations).
